I've been researching and I can't seem to determine what the problem is with the key.  It appears to have a bad signature?  I imported the key and do an edit check:

C:\GnuPG>gpg --import xx.asc
gpg: key F867286A: public key "Named File Transfer" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1

The problem is that even if I follow through and TRUST it anyway, when I try to decrypt a file from them I get an error: "mpi too large".  I don't know if the problems are even related.

I've been working on this guy for some time now.  If there anyone that can help?  Thank you
